Cisco has successfully tested its NCS 1004 platform on Marea, a 6,600 km cable between Virginia Beach, Virginia and Bilbao, Spain. In a statement, Cisco said the aim of the trial was to demonstrate the ability to provide increased transatlantic bandwidth as well as simulate transpacific distances via loopback on one end of the cable. For the Virginia to Bilbao trial, 400G error-free performance was demonstrated, with channels hitting record spectral efficiency of 6.445 bps/Hz, while 4.52bps/Hz spectral efficiency was tested on the looped back scenario of over 13,200km.
